Intel chip cuts processing time

Data intensive imaging scans, such as 4D CT brain perfusion studies, are processed 34% faster, when Vital Images’ Vitrea fX software runs on Intel’s new Xeon 5500 processor series.

Data intensive imaging scans, such as 4D CT brain perfusion studies, are processed 34% faster, when Vital Images’ Vitrea fX software runs on Intel’s new Xeon 5500 processor series.  The claim by Vital Images underscores the need for more efficient post processing of large datasets, such as those captured during cardiovascular and neurological scans. The company developed its volumetric compression software specifically to take advantage of Intel’s latest breed of microprocessor. Their combination substantially decreases the time needed to load clinical data sets, decreasing the time from scan to image, which enables physicians to treat critical care and other patients more efficiently and effectively, according to Vital Images.
